Why are your grooming rates relatively higher than other grooming establishments?
Rates are priced at a premium as we take pride in providing a highly personalised and customised service for every animal. We take limited appointments each day so that we can give each and every pet our undivided attention throughout the entire grooming session.
Our studio is cage-free, fully air-conditioned with an open concept layout, allowing families to be with their pets during the grooming process. The grooming products we use on the animals are carefully chosen and are made from natural, plant-based and cruelty-free ingredients.
How do Bubbly Petz groomers groom dogs humanely and safely?
Our team consist of Fear Free Certified and Low-Stress Handling Certified professional, and preventing and alleviating fear, stress and anxiety is the priority in our approach. We take time to understand each and every dog's tolerance towards grooming, and customise our approach to encourage positive associations. Potential stressors in the environment, such as the use of table restraints are removed, and each pet receive undivided attention during the grooming process. For pets with behavioural challenges, we go with their pace instead of forcing them through a groom. We do not believe in aversive methods.

My dog is aggressive. Do you handle aggressive dogs?
We feel your struggles and strive our best to help each and every dog that comes through our door. We can and have successfully groomed many dogs with behavioural challenges. As each dog is uniquely different, please reach out to us and discuss your concerns so we can better assess the situation.
In order for grooming to happen, the minimum requirement is that you must be able to at least pick up your dog and in worst case scenarios, be able to put on the muzzle for your dog.
Please feel free to bring along your dog's favourite treats and items from home that they find comforting.
Do note that there may be a service fee of $20 onwards if we require additional manpower and/or time to complete the grooming service for your dog.

Definitely! Inform us in advance if your dog is unable to stand or require special care so that we can cater additional time for him or her.
My dog has sensitive skin and I’m quite concerned about the cleanliness of the grooming tools. Are your grooming tools sterile?
Our tools are sterilised between sessions with each animal client with a special disinfectant spray. Our tools and tables are also wiped down between sessions with a disinfectant solution. You can be assured that we do not use dirty tools on your beloved dog!

What do I need to know about the grooming deposits?
We will require a $50 deposit to confirm your appointment slot if
- Your appointment falls in the last 2 weeks leading to the Lunar New Year
- You've requested to cancel or reschedule your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, 3 consecutive times
Upon paying the deposit, if you fail to turn up or inform of any changes 36 hours before the scheduled appointment, the deposit will be forfeited. If you do turn up, the amount can be used to offset the overall grooming cost.
This is an effort to prevent last minute cancellation/rescheduling of appointments and encourage amongst customers the practice of giving us ample time to offer the affected slot to another customer who is in need of an appointment. As we strive to serve all customers fairly, we seek your kind understanding.
